Work Hard, Get Outside

Culture

Kammok HQ is a thriving, creative place, nested in the hustle and bustle of East Austin. Automatic pour-over coffee, natural light, and our urban-outdoor-meets-southwest-modern-aesthetic make Kammok’s in-office space an inspiring environment for design.

We work hard, get outside with people we love as often as possible, and hold fast to a few, simple non-negotiables.

FAQs

Got questions? Let’s get those answered.

Where does the name “Kammok” come from?

Somewhere between dreaming outside the box, creative thinking, and too many cups of coffee, our Founder created the word “Kammok”, a tongue-tied marriage of camping + hammock. Today, Kammok is a company seeking to equip and inspire others for life changing adventure through the creation of technical, quality outdoor gear--while also doubling as a Spelling Bee Champion’s worst nightmare. K-A-M-M-O-K. ;)

Who started Kammok?

In 2010, Greg McEvilly founded Kammok on a fundamental belief that adventure changes lives, joining business with social impact to serve a higher purpose in the outdoor industry. Read more about our history and founding story here.

What is the purpose of ‘high-quality’ hammocks? What makes these special?

We designed our hammocks with the special sauce. Here’s our secret:

  • We created a hammock that out performs any hammock in the industry.
  • LunarWave fabric: ripstop nylon vs. the average nylon used in most industry hammocks.
  • Durability: our Roo hammock holds up to 500 lbs!
  • Safety: climbing-rated carabiners and racer slings set an unparalleled standard for hammock safety.
  • Lifetime Warranty: every Kammok product is backed under our MOB Guarantee: a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects and damages within proper use.
  • Through our hammocks and other products, we aim to help you create a greater story for yourself, your family, and your community.
  • Anyone who’s spent any time in nature knows that there is something unexplainably restful, peace-giving and clarifying about being outdoors. We believe there is a fullness of life waiting for each of us in the great outdoors.
  • We’re a small team based out of Austin, TX and we want our products to be catalysts for your most life changing adventures.
  • Plus, we believe deeply in the positive development of youth in our community. Investing in youth is central to our future. Learn more about our Give Adventure™ Program here.

What is B Corporation? 1% For the Planet? Sounds like a small percentage…

B Corp is to business what a Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. Essentially, a B Corporation is a company that meets performance and legal requirements by B Lab, a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as an avenue to do good. They’re on a mission to build a global community of certified B Corps who meet the highest standards of verified, overall social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability. 1% for the Planet is a not-for-profit organization that connects businesses, consumers, and nonprofits - empowering each of us to drive lasting, positive change. What does that look like? Great question. It means that every year, before we take any expenses, salary, overhead or material costs out of the equation, we take 1% of our revenue and donate it to our nonprofit partners. Wait, so you donate revenue...not profit? YES, and it’s awesome. We believe in our partners and the work they are doing; we are honored to give more as we grow more.

What is the Give Adventure Program? Why youth?

We believe big adventures start small, and that you must first go deep to go wide. As such, we are starting from where we are - literally in Austin, Texas - working with local partners on mission in our city who are focused on relational, direct impact (mentorship, leadership and outdoor adventure programs) and systemic change (field research, access and infrastructure, scalable education models). Our Give Adventure Program is our way of practicing what we preach, and investing in the local community with adventure and love. Youth are the future of our world, and a single child impacted for the better begins a ripple effect for all future generations. When you buy Kammok, you Give Adventure. It’s that simple.

And lastly, why do you talk so much about tacos?! What’s the deal?

Maria and Armando. Texas Forever. Tacos are Tasty. The significance of tacos to Kammok is rooted far back in time, where our team’s deep love for the delicious food met an act of fate that occurred one afternoon at our HQ. Long story short - it came to our attention that our friends Maria + Armando, owners of the best taco truck in Austin, were going to have to shut down their truck due to the high cost of rent, in addition to the cost of using fresh ingredients daily. We saw an opportunity to give back to the community of East Austin, embark on an adventure with Granny’s Tacos, and fuel our love for helping others - so we pushed some dirt around in our backyard and re-opened Granny’s Tacos at the Kammok HQ. You can now find Granny’s Tacos right in our backyard, open to the public Mon-Sat from 9-4 pm. Drop by and grab a taco with us - Topo Chicos all around.
